Have you ever wondered, “Oh, what I wouldn't give to have a nice relaxing time at the spa right about now?” Regular life is stressful! Through the difficult times, we all need some personal space to simply lay back and relax... And what better place to do that than your own home?
There’s an easy way to make more of bath time! Something as simple as a bath bomb can really elevate the experience of a bath. Bath bombs work in many ways - they are fun to watch; smell great; and help to clean, smooth, and repair your skin. Plus, the hot water from the bath helps to loosen up those sore muscles from sitting at your desk and/or working hard all day long.
But you know what’s the best part? You can get a spa-like DIY bath at home. It’s an easy, relaxing and joyful experience available right in the comfort of your own tub. Let’s get right into it - here's how to make yourself an amazing spa-night at home:
Gather All Your Essentials
First, let’s check the basics off the list.
1.) Clean tub - Do a once over and clean up any loose hairs, marks, or residue... The few extra minutes will go a long way!
2.) Ingredients- Epsom salt, kosher salt, and essential oils are a good place to start. Whatever fragrance best resonates with your mood - but as a good rule of thumb, you can never go wrong with Lavender which relaxes you.
3.) Bath Bomb - Bath bombs have ALLof the aforementioned ingredients, plus a blend of oils and butters that help to smooth and repair dry skin. Take the prep work out of your relaxation night by simply investing in a lovely-smelling bomb.
4.) A Fragrant Candle - this little bit of ambiance will will help set you in the right mood. Choosing a complimentary scent to your bath bomb is also an amazing choice, although Jackpot Candles' Lavender, Ocean Breeze, and Mermaid Daydream candles are all incredible for relaxing.
Once your Jackpot Candle is lightly flickering in the background, run the bathwater at a temperature that’s perfect for you! We recommend hot to sooth your aching muscles, but definitely not scalding!
Protip: Use the underside your wrist to test the water temperature, this should be a good indication of how the temperature will feel on your entire body. Your hands and legs have a higher tolerance to heat compared to the other areas of your body, so they may not give an accurate reflection as to whether the bathwater is too hot or too cold.
Set the Mood
Now that your bath is laid out, a relaxing ambiance and tone are very important before you climb into the bath.
1.) Dim the lights - Privacy, mood, whatever! Dim lights can make or break a spa night. Something about the low lighting is lovely and calming.
2.) Put on some relaxing music - Find some chill tunes, something you find really pleasant... A movie you love can also suffice if you want to bring a laptop or tablet along!
3.) Make a headrest - Take a towel, roll it up, and use it as a headrest while you’re relaxing in the tub - it's like a little pillow!
4.) Pour yourself a beverage - Pour your self a good glass of wine or you could also make detox water to ensure you’re well-hydrated during your bath. Grab a book and climb into your relaxing spa-like DIY bath
